Is it just me and lil bro...or does this fruit taste like vomit? I don't mean it tastes bad I mean it literally tastes like barf.

I am sorry to papaya lovers...but when we were in mexico a few yrs ago my dad LOOOVED it kept buying more and more...trying to give me and lil bro some, both politely refusing, yet encouraging the other sibling to have some :evil:

hahaha finally we both shared our independently formed conclusions re: the taste of papaya. We just cant understand how we both thought it literally tasted of vomit (and we hardly agree on anything :rolleyes:) yet others find it sooo succulent?

We remembered yesterday when my mom ordered a gelato with papaya yesterday at a restaurant..my lil bro and I made eye contact and started laughing uncontrollably...the horror all came back :crazy:

So do you find papaya delicous?

It's been ages since I've had papaya but from what I can remember I liked it. :shrug:

Or maybe it was a mango I had :confused: ....it's been so long I can't remember. :laughing:

mango is yummy delicious goodness. definately does not taste like vomit!

Buttt the mango you can get in north america is pretty weak I have to say. Nothing like the indian/ egyptian mango (i think its just really really unripe).

im sure there are people with different taste buds, heck my parents both love the fruit. I just find it so weird that there can be such a degree in variation in tastes!

YES!

I've said the same thing for years! Stuff even smells like vomit. Esp the tablets you get in health food stores.

Maybe not but it does encourage it :yuck:.

does the texture get to you? i think it might be related to growing up eating mango or not...my SIL isnt too much of a fan :shrug:
